Never mind the X Factor and Strictly.  Club Captain Paul Wilkes, our very own British record holder, has been shortlisted for the Redditch Advertiser's Sports Personality of the Year Award.  Please vote for him here.  Voting closes at midnight on Sunday 11th January, so don't delay!
 
Long Course Training - Sat 20 Dec (Coventry)

We have been invited to attend a long course training session, with Wyre Forest SC, at Coventry on Saturday 20th December.  Lanes have been
booked from 10.30 to 12.30.

Cost for the session will be based on numbers attending, but will be £7.50 at most.

Performance squad swimmers and others aged
10 or over close to Midland qualifying times will be given priority, but others are welcome to express an interest and additional spaces may be available for swimmers of County standard or above.

If you have not already done so, please let Chris know by Monday 8th December if you would like to book a place.

Xmas Galas - 6 Dec

A reminder to all swimmers, spectators and poolside volunteers attending the St Nicholas Gala at Wolverhampton or the Gavin Tipper Trophy at Bromsgrove that both galas have a Christmas them and everyone is encouraged to wear something appropriate for the season!

Good luck to all of our swimmers at both galas!

Kingsley - Distance Badges 9 and 11 Dec

Can all parents please note that on Tuesday 9th and Thursday 11th December there will be no normal lessons or competitive training during these
sessions.   Instead these sessions will be dedicated to obtaining distance badges.   If you wish to obtain a distance badge please ensure that you note it on the list on the noticeboard so that we can order the lanes and ensure we have enough certificates. 

On Tuesday the session will start at 5 p.m. and the pool will be laned into lengths for 2 hours.
On Thursday the session will start at 5:30 p.m. and the pool will be laned into lengths for 1 ½ hours
 
The younger swimmers in our learn to swim programme will use the lane nearest to the
window to achieve the distance they require and when finished we will use it also for the longer distances.  Badges start at 5m and go up to 5,000m.   For the longer distances the swimmers must start at 5 or 5.30 if they are to achieve
this.

Swimmer of the Month - October
Apologies for the very late confirmation, but last month's winners are here.  Congratulations to all the winners, your certificates will be presented as
soon as possible.

New Summer Championships to Aid Young British Talent
